In addition to its much-anticipated 2014 hardcover book edition, Guinness World Records is happy to announce the launch of three unique digital books, designed exclusively for iBooks on your iPad.

The titles include "Awesome Animals," "Incredible People," and "Colossal Constructions," available now through iBooks, with "Awesome Animals" available as a free download.


The collection represents a wide-ranging look at some of the most amazing records in the Guinness World Records database, from tightrope-walking dogs to the shortest woman on Earth and the tallest rideable motorcycle.

Each book comes packed with dozens of videos, photo galleries, and fun-filled quizzes. "Awesome Animals" documents the most extreme and amazing animals on our planet. You can not only read all about them, but also watch videos of them in action - from skateboarding dogs to the most venomous predators on Earth!

"Incredible People," meanwhile, is packed full with record-breaking bodies, breathtaking stunts and awesome feats of skill, strength, and endurance. This eBook celebrates the world’s most amazing people.


And "Colossal Constructions" bursts with record-breaking engineering feats from planes, boats, and cars, and also takes a look at what happens when massive machines go seriously wrong!


Each eBook also features fun, new Star Cards of various record holders, full of amazing photos, record-breaking facts, and the chance to share your card collection online with friends. Downloaders of the free "Awesome Animals" book receive 10 cards to start their collection off.

These three incredible and exclusive titles are available now in the U.S. iBooks store, as well as the UK and Ireland iBooks store.
